Crossroads Alliance Church Vision Statement

 

The vision of Crossroads Alliance Church is to incorporate into the Body of Christ a Biblical pattern of daily Christian living that will establish personal intimacy with God and facilitate the coming of the glory of the Lord into the individual believers life and the life of the corporate body, in order that the ministry of Christ may be fulfilled.

 

 

Statement of Faith

 

 1. There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

 2. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus, who was without sin, died upon the cross for the sin of mankind, and all who believe on Him are forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life. Jesus arose from the dead according to the scriptures and is now seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. He will come again in glory to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.

 

 3. The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer, and to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.

 

 4. The Old and New Testaments, without error as originally given were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of God’s will for the salvation of men. They are the divine and only rule for Christian faith and practice.

 

 5. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God but fell through disobedience, which brought about both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God and can be saved only through the redeeming work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The fate of the unbelieving unrepentant sinner is existence forever in conscious torment, and that of the believer in Christ is everlasting joy and peace with God.

 

 6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men. Those who repent and believe in Him are born again by the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God.

 

 7. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be conformed into the image of Jesus. This is the process of sanctification, which begins at conversion and continues throughout the life of the believer. With this filling of the Holy Spirit, God’s people are empowered with spiritual gifts. These gifts include, but are not limited to, the nine spiritual gifts the apostle Paul lists in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, which are the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, healings, miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues and interpretation of tongues. It is God’s will that these gifts be in operation within the Body of Christ today for the winning of the lost and the edification of the church.

 

  8. Through the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary, physical healing of the body is provided.

Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.

 

 9. The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood and are born again by the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness preaching and demonstrating the power of the gospel to all nations.

 

The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, the teachings of the scriptures, prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel and the observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

 

10. There shall be a bodily resurrection of all mankind. For the believer it will be a resurrection to eternal life; for the unbeliever it will be a resurrection to eternal judgment.

 

11. Jesus Christ will come to the earth once again. His coming could be at any time. It will be personal and visible. At this time He will establish His thousand year reign upon the earth. This is the believers hope and an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
